About The HOW Institute for Society
The arrival of the 21st Century has brought with it not only rapid changes, but a dramatic reshaping of how the world works. This reshaping is happening faster than we have yet been able to reshape our institutions, our leadership and ourselves. We need an organization dedicated to helping develop the necessary norms, practices, and behaviors that will help us adapt to this new era, where we all rise or fall together.
The HOW Institute for Society is that organization, with a mission to build and nurture a culture of moral leadership, principled decision-making and values-based behavior that enables individuals and institutions to meet the profound social, economic, and technological changes of the 21st Century to elevate humanity.
